PIRTEK Enduro Cup

2017_Pirtek_EC_Logo_CMYK

The PIRTEK Enduro Cup is the prize awarded to the Supercars driver and co-driver pairing that is the most consistent across all three of Australia’s iconic endurance events.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Sandown 500 in September, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600 in October offer four opportunities for each of the pairings to score points, and step towards the PIRTEK Enduro Cup.

The trophy, a stunning piece of artwork created by esteemed Australian artist James Corbett, is awarded after the final race at the Gold Coast, following 2100km of gruelling endurance racing.

The Sandown 500 is a two-driver, 500 kilometre race to be held on Sunday September 17. Individual qualifying races will be held for each driver on the Saturday of the event, with the combined results to determine the grid for Sunday’s race.

The Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is Australian motor racing’s answer to the Melbourne Cup. Engulfing the NSW regional city of Bathurst for four days across October 5-8, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is a six-hour, two-driver total dog fight around 6.213km of majestic, mountainous roadway.

Finally, the PIRTEK Enduro Cup will end with the party to end all parties, the Gold Coast 600. Two 300km races will be held within Australia’s holiday playground – a fitting end to what promises to be an electric, Championship-defining endurance season.

Last year, eventual series Champion, Kiwi Shane van Gisbergen won the honour with Frenchman Alex Premat. They became the first international pair to take the prize, after three second place finishes and one win throughout the four high-stakes races.
